VISIT YOUR DOCTOR REGULARLY
Regularly visiting a doctor is necessary at all ages. However, from the age of 40, you need to perform the mammogram exam annually, a breast x-ray that detects signs of tumours, benign or malignant.
If you have cases in your family of breast cancer, especially among first-degree relatives such as mothers and sisters, it is best to begin this prevention even earlier. An expert tip is to start mammography ten years younger than the person who had cancer.
Example: If your mother had cancer at age 40, it is ideal that you begin the test at age 30. If it was at 45, you should start at 35. But here is a warning, it is recommended that even if there are cases of cancer among young people in the family, mammography is performed only in those over the age of 25, because the breasts, before this age, are more susceptible to radiation.
